Re: Arena 3.9 beta for Linux

I find the piece set used in Arena 3.10 beta (and 3.9 beta for that matter - they seem the same) to be rather low quality with lots of rough edges (visually) on the pieces. Is there a way to get Arena to use other piece sets? Merida 1 as used in SCID looks great - but I it does not seem to be compat...

Re: These mobile engines play some really deep chess games.

Indeed. Long gone are the days when I struggled to find a program that could give me a challenging game. Smartphones have more than enough power and the software to soundly defeat any human in a match. Thank goodness for the ability to set these beasts to lower levels so that I can have a chance onc...

Re: About stockfish's optimizing for bullet

I think they should move to standardise at a longer time control. At least give it a try. How can that be given a try? It would mean that vastly fewer tests can be run. Less tests does not mean less elo. I believe it is better to have less tests at longer time control in order to improve long time ...

Re: benchmark new smartphones:

Decided I did not like the iPad Air screen ( too much wasted real estate for tv/movies), took it back and xchanged it for the iPad Pro 11" model. This is the best score, average is about 8300. Also, this is the 8 core CPU, iPad Air was just 6 cores. Mike - welcome to the club! I also have an iPad P...

Re: Chess Analysis, Linux and Python

I use SCID (http://scid.sourceforge.net/) to work with PGN game collections and analyze the games using Stockfish. It's not clear to me how you make use of Python to help analyze your games, so I cannot comment much other than to say that Python runs on Linux as it does on many platforms so in theor...

Re: LC0 for iPad?

Is anyone working on porting LC0 (if that's the right term) to the iPad? My iPad is my main chess playing/analysis platform these days. You are using websites on iPad for playing and analysis I guess. Or you are using apps? Which one ? I am running apps on the iPad. Apps like "Analyze This" (which ...

Re: Stockfish for ios

https://www.macrumors.com/2018/04/11/apple-mac-app-store-64-bit-support/ Well those other programs are not using all of the threads. Stockfish by Tord doesn't either by default. I had to enable all threads in the options menu. I'm not sure what you are referring to when you say: "I had to enable al...
